SAPD responds to shots fired call, find no evidence, but make arrest on warrant

San Angelo police responded to a report of shots fired just before midnight Wednesday in the 1800 block of Guadalupe Street. After speaking with several neighbors who said they heard three or four gunshots, they found they did not know where the shots originated from. Officers searched the area for evidence of a shooting/deadly conduct but were not able to locate anything.

As officers continued to walk the area, they made contact with two men standing in front of the Hard Byte Café, 1833 Freeland Ave. Police interviewed both men. One said that [they] were walking on Guadalupe Street, when an unknown person in a vehicle started following them. The man said a Hispanic male exited the vehicle and said “what’s up” and he believed he saw a handgun in his hand, so he told his friend to run.

He told police they ran to the café. The other man told a similar story to police. Both men were uncooperative and refused to give any more information to the officers.

One of the men was found to have an outstanding warrant and was arrested at the scene. Twenty-five year old Benjamin Dunn was wanted on a capias pro fine on a previous charge of possession of marijuana more than 2 oz., according to Tom Green County Jail records.

A capias pro fine is a writ or warrant issued after the defendant defaults on an agreement with the court. The writ is considered outstanding until paid in full. The recipient usually must remain in jail until fees and/or costs have been satisfied by time served or the fees and/or costs have been paid in full.

Police say they never located evidence of shots fired and no further information came in and there were no victims called in.
